If you want true choice of the best available coverage for your home, start with where you seek that choice. One big example of true choice is to look at the difference between buying home insurance from USAA, Geico, and Emerge Insurance Agency. Let’s start with USAA:
Most people don’t know that USAA does NOT write new homeowners insurance in Florida. USAA will broker it with ASI which was bought by Progressive and is now Progressive Home. USAA only offers one choice for home insurance currently. You call an 800 number and will get a different person every time. They are licensed customer service representatives and typically not fully licensed agents.
Like USAA, Geico does NOT write new homeowners insurance in Florida. They will broker it with Security First insurance company. Geico only offers one choice for home insurance currently. You call an 800 number and will get a different person every time. They are licensed customer service representatives and typically not fully licensed insurance agents.
Emerge insurance agency represents both ASI/Progressive Home, Security First and about 22 other homeowners’ insurance companies in Florida. When you call Emerge Insurance Agency, you get a fully licensed insurance agent and you will keep that agent beyond an initial transaction, but have a relationship that allows you to call the same person when you have a problem. We don’t send you off to a call center where you will get a different person every time you call.
So ask yourself why would anyone call USAA or Geico when you can call Emerge Insurance Agency and get quotes from more companies, have your own licensed agents, and receive consistently good service?

This could be a conversation between agents in an independent insurance agent office:
Jim said, “I feel like David.” Huh?!? “Okay, I’ll bite,” John thinks. So, he asked, “David who?” “You know…the guy who was up against the giant in the Bible. Only, instead of a giant, I am up against a lizard and prehistoric characters.” Ah, now John was starting to get the idea – large insurance companies and their clever marketing campaigns.
I can understand how it may feel overwhelming for an individual or small business to stay ahead of the curve, or even just keep up with it, with rapid technological changes in business and marketing strategies. Internet presence and social media forums certainly are formidable foes for the traditional phone book. But, while those large insurance companies may provide amusing advertisements to a wide audience, do they provide you with the best-fitting products?
Emerge Insurance Agency is an independent insurance agency – a fact we are very proud of! It is also a fact that there are tremendous benefits to buying your insurance through an independent agent. Some people may tend to overlook that fact when shopping for insurance, but these key benefits are worth looking at!
Emerge Insurance Agency knows it is important to stay current with business marketing strategies and we will do what we can, but why fight the giant, David? What is most important is that Emerge Insurance Agency will continue to do what it does best – Bringing choice and service to the customer!
